the impossible visual effects ves entertainment film news

The Visual Effects Oscar is typically awarded to CGI-driven films, but the Visual Effects Society also recognizes productions where effects are less central to the storytelling.

In this year's race for Best Supporting Visual Effects, "The Impossible," which dramatizes the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia, gets field-leading 3/2 odds from our predictorsIt would be the second film in three years to win this award for recreating the 2004 tsunami: Clint Eastwood's supernatural drama "Hereafter" won in 2010.

In second place is "Flight," which opens with an extended plane-crash sequence. Two of our editors and more than two dozen users favor it to win, giving it 12/5 odds overall.

The rest of the field is far behind. In third place, with 5/1 odds, is "Zero Dark Thirty," which follows the decade-long hunt for Osama Bin Laden.

"Rust and Bone" is in fourth place with 13/2 odds. Jacques Audiard's romantic drama uses visual effects to make Marion Cotillard appear as a double-amputee.

The momentum of "Argo" at recent guild awards isn't expected to extend to the VES. It ranks fifth with 9/1 odds.
